Bryan Singer Teases Beginning of 'X-Men: Apocalypse' Treatment
Now that X-Men: Days of Future Past has come and gone, we're already looking forward to X-Men: Apocalypse in 2016. Of course, despite being attached last year, we're not sure if Fox will bring back director Bryan Singer considering his recent legal troubles. But for now he's still hard at work on the sequel since he just posted a picture to Instagram of the treatment for the film. Dated June 6th of this year, it's a recent draft, and you can read a bit of the treatment that gives us an idea of how the film will open. And if you stuck around for the scene after the credits of X-Men: Days of Future Past, it makes sense.
Here's the picture of the X-Men: Apocalypse treatment Bryan Singer posted to Instagram:
As you can see, there's mentions of The Nile and The Four Horseman. Since the credits scene from Days of Future Past teased a young version of the villain Apocalypse in ancient Egypt, it makes sense that the prologue of the film would deal with some events that happened far in the past when Apocalypse became the first mutant. As we wondered in our explanation of the aforementioned credits scene, since the original scene that existed in the Days of Future Past screenplay didn't come to fruition, there's a chance that unused element will be put into action in X-Men: Apocalypse. We'll have to wait and see. Thoughts?

I would really prefer that if they are going with Apocalypse then just have it as him .. do not have him "possess" Magneto ...like the 2nd Fantastic Four film .. they used Galactus as a giant shadow in a cloud .. enough .. just show the villain and it is possible in this day and age .. they just need to go for it to make this movie what it needs to be

Bryan Singer understands these characters to their upmost potential. NO ONE understands the X-Men quite like Singer does. He envisioned the franchise 15 years ago and was successful. He's just like Christopher Nolan and Bruce Wayne. In Singer I trust.
